If the Misfits merged with Sick Of It All and Pantera in an unholy melting pot, you'd probably have this band. The sound is New York hardcore, but their song themes are much darker. And what do you know? They're east coasters. It's got a heavy, energetic sound, with good production. I think a lot of NYHC fans would be stoked on this. Truth be told, this sounds like a somewhat generic hardcore meathead festival to me, though not a terrible one. Still, I'd rather be listening to Sick of it All. -KO!
